U.S. Afghan helo crash - Condolences only

#1
Eight coalition members were killed and 14 others wounded when their helicopter had a "sudden, unexplained loss of power and control" and crashed in southeastern Afghanistan on Sunday, military officials said.

All eight were U.S. personnel, according to news wire reports.

The CH-47 Chinook was transporting 22 people, including crew, at the time of the crash.

Rescuers found the 14 injured passengers after launching a search operation and transported them to the hospital.

The crew initially indicated they had engine failure, an earlier statement said.
